“Hot Chocolate” Milkshake

Winter is the best time of year for hot chocolates.
It’s been way too long since I’ve indulged in one myself, but today’s recipe was inspired by a change of mind from my brother.
See he wanted a hot chocolate – then decided last minute that he would rather a milkshake.
Fighting the temptation to tip the hot chocolate goodness all over his head, I had a moment of inspiration.
Why not take a classic hot chocolate, and make it the base of your milkshake? 😀

I have a vegan alternative written below the vegetarian recipe, so for all those vegans out there you can indulge too 😉

“Hot Chocolate” Milkshake
Ingredients:

  • 250ml full cream milk
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice-cream
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 straw
  • 1 epic milkshake cup

Method:

  1. To create the hot chocolate component, heat milk, cocoa powder and maple syrup in a small pan on medium heat.
  2. Stir till all ingredients have combined well, and then take off the heat.
  3. Cool till lukewarm.
  4. Using a blender, add ice-cream, and the hot chocolate liquid. Blend till bubbles form on the surface.

Serve in a milkshake glass with a straw– for an even more tasty addition, add one scoop of ice-cream and a chocolate drizzle!
